Programme Overview

The Data-Driven Leader Programme is a 12-month programme (+ End Point Assessment), designed for managers seeking to improve their data skills and build effective data literate teams. 

The collaboration between Imperial College Business School and Corndel combines academic excellence with personalised coaching, providing a unique blend of business school thinking and practical skills. Join us for a transformative journey, integrating world-class education with tailored mentoring through Corndel's renowned coaching model.

Who is the Programme for?

Our programme is designed for experienced managers looking to improve their data skills and deliver greater organisational impact through their use, knowledge, and communication of data and digital tools. The programme is suitable for managers working in any business function who interact with data on a weekly basis.

Please note that our application process is geared towards organisations rather than individuals. We recommend reaching out to your HR team to explore the possibility of using the apprenticeship levy to enrol in one of our programmes as part of a cohort. By collaborating directly with organisations, we aim to create a collective learning experience that benefits both the organisation and its members.
